Wired Campus: YouTube Videos Warns Cal State U. Applicants That 'Time Is Running Out'
Application deadlines at many of the California State University’s 23 campuses have traditionally been loose. Students could apply in the fall, spring, and summer without fear of the campuses filling up.
But those days are over. If students don’t apply by November 30, they may not get in, Cal State officials warn in two new videos on YouTube.
Officials turned to YouTube as they scramble to get the word out to high-school seniors and to community-college students hoping to transfer. Cal State officials posted links to the videos on university Web sites and also asked communities, churches, and students to post the videos on their personal Web pages.
